- Best Durga Puja Pandel Contest - 2014
As we approach the days of Durga Puja the mind is transported
to the world of festivity, spirituality and fulfillment. The air and the atmosphere
are filled with the aroma of shiuli flowers, the chanting of holy mantra and the
melodious sounds of Dhak. We get prepared for the anjali in the morning, the traditional
arati in the evening and a whole day of fun and laughter.
We Bengalis believe Ma Durga visits us every year with
her children for these five days. This Earth is her maiden home, so she is pampered
here and at the end is welcomed again next year. Durga Puja is not just about spirituality;
it also teaches us the beautiful ways of our society. The good and the noble should
always prevail over the bad and the evil is one of the intrinsic messages of Durga
Puja. The Almighty could never tolerate the suppression of the 'good people' by
the ill- gotten might of the 'bad people.'
It is imperative, my friends, to keep calm, poise and repose complete faith in the
ways of the Goddess. We firmly believe that the ten hands of the Ma Durga will protect
us from all evils for years to come. As Swami Vivekananda rightly said, it is not
idol-worshipping but ideal-worshipping.
The week-long Durga Puja celebration is made possible by the honest intention of
our members without whom the grand preparation would not have been successful. Experience
and hard work play their roles in organizing this mega event every year. I specially
congratulate the youngsters who have taken over higher responsibilities on their
Our Puja celebration showcases the best available in mandap decoration, protima
and cultural functions. The beautifully presented in-house programs are a result
of hard work and dedication of our members while the programmes by renowned artists
of repute add to the glory of our Puja. The amalgamation of the traditional and
the modern is the hallmark of our cultural extravaganza. We are sure to reach higher
goals in all the fields this year too.
On behalf of Dakshin Gurgaon Puja committee in South City-II, I take this opportunity
to thank all our revered patrons, vendors and advertisers for their contribution.

talents to ensure smooth functioning of the celebration. I have greatest respect
for the ladies of our Puja committee who take utmost care to make this puja a grand
I wish you all a week full of festivity and social harmony. Working with you has
always been a pleasure for me and the sweet memories will never fade away. May all
your wishes be fulfilled with the blessings of Devi Durga.
